Shanghai Camera History Museum

Museum in French Concession

One for diehard vintage camera fans, this museum displays cameras from the 20th century, including old folding models from the 1920s and ’30s as well as a collection of retro Polaroid cameras. The museum focuses on the well-known Shanghai brand, Seagull, but you'll also find international brands such as Nikon and Leica. There's a quiet cafe on the 2nd floor with photography books and magazines to flick through.
